Pat Robertson Says Some Crap

12 June 2007

From "The 700 Club":

"Ladies and gentlemen, we have to recognize that Islam is not a religion. It is a worldwide political movement meant on domination of the world. And it is meant to subjugate all people under Islamic law. In the Quran, it says it very clearly. There are two spheres. One is the Dar al-Harb, which is the realm of war. The other is Dar al-Islam, which is that part that's under submission to Islam. There is no middle ground. You're either at war or you're under submission. Now, that's the way they think.

Now, sure, over here, you've got Islam light and you've got all these various things, but the idea is we don't want just accommodation, we want to take over and we want to impose Sharia on you. And before long, ladies are going to be dressed in burqas and whatever garments they would put on them, and next thing you know, men are going to be allowed to have wife-beating and you'll be beheading adulterers and so on and so forth. That's Saudi Arabia. We don't want that here in America. If they don't like it here in America, then let them go to Saudi Arabia, to Kuwait, to Yemen, to all those wonderful nations around the Middle East. "

Muslim-baiting aside, I have to agree with Pat that Sharia law is 100% undesireable. That being said, I'm glad that a good number of Muslims practice "Islam light" and forego the whole Sharia law thing. Likewise, I'm glad that today most of the Judeo-Christian community practices "Christianity/Judaism light" and sidesteps the whole Mosaic law thing as well. Let's not forget that the god of the Old Testament also instructed his followers to kill adulterers (Lev. 20:10), and subjugate women (Ephesians 5:22-24).
